A Hockey Challenge
Sandon has a hockey team this year
that can skin anything west oi Winnipeg. The hoys are willing to play at
anv time, in any place, on any kind of
ice, for money, chalk or marbles, with
cups, trophies and glory badges thrown
in. If there is any hockey team anywhere that wants to take a try al it,
thev can arrange details by writing or
wiring Fred Ritchie, the secretary.
There is only one provision lhat will
be insisted on. The other team must
.rive Sandon a return game.
Tho Wonderful
W. W. Warner has taken a new
lease on the Wonderful and resumed
operations with a small force. He will

1(,ns of zinc blende was .aken out, but
thrown over the dump as it was then
valueless. This dump may be gone
over and the. ore recovered. During
the past .8 months Mr. Warner has
spent $17,000 in work on the Wonder-
ful and the showing now is such that
with the prices of two years ago the
property would be one of the biggest
bonanzas in British Columbia.
It is reported that the Wonderful
and Miller Creek companies are to be
reorganized and consolidated.

The Ontario Hockey Association has
decided to boycott the Pittsburg hockey
club for   professionalism.    Il   appears
that   Pittsburg   is   taking    its hockey
seriously and pays its boys a salary  on

in the regular athletic course and   brot
right up to the pink of condition before
the season opens.     The  strictest   kind
of   rules   regulate   the   players.    If a
Pittsburg hockey player gets ruled  olT
the manager taxes him $2.    If  it   occurs twice, the fine is $5.    If a  player
shows    up     with   the   symptoms of
tobacco or boozerino about   him   he is
fined $5, and if he is found  drunk   the
management lels him out immediately.

German   Producers   Favor   Levy  of  an
Producers   Favor
Import   Duty
A majority of lhe lead mining com
panies in Germany, recently held a con
venlion in Dusseldorf, with a \iew of
improving the conditions of the industry
in that country. Commenting on lhe
meeting the Financial News of London
says :
It appears lhat the price of lead declined by more lhan 60 per cent between January and December of last
year, and that this reduction, taken in
conjunction wilh the technical dfficul-
ties of lead mining, excludes the possibility of any proht being earned. The
diminution in price is mainly attributed
lo the incapacity of the London market
on behalf of Europe to resist the large
quantity of imports. Ten years ago
Australia, Mexico and Spain delivered
30 per ceul of the world's consumption,
but in 1901 they supplied more than 50
per cent of the European demand,
while the United States as a buyer will
not fail lo render the pressure of overproduction of the exporting countries
of a permanent character 10 all other
The production of lead  in  Germany
in 1901 was considerably  less  than  in
1885, and lhe  imports,   both of crude
lead and lead ore have very extensively
increased since 1885, whereas   the   exports   have   largely diminished.    The
disproportion   which   has  arisen   since
1901, between thc cost of price ore and
the   prices   of the overloaded London
market   has   already .resulted  in  the
closing of several German  mines and
the  bankruptcy   of  others.    In  these
circumstances the German  firms have
appointed a committee to advocate the
imposition of a duty on lead imports
into Germany and to propose the
establishment of more intimate relations
between the various works���perhaps
of a combine.
What Makes Gold Valuable
The quality which makes gold the
most valuable of the metals is its ductility. The cunning hammer of the
9inith can teach it most anything.
The more stubborn metals crumble
after they have been reduced to a certain point of fineness; but gold can be
hammered into a sheet so infinitely fine
that 282,000 of them, piled one upon
the other, would be but an inch thick.
And a flake of gold, tiny as a pi ahead,
can be drawn out in a finer thread than
ever man spun, in a spider���to a spider
thread���to a length of 500 feet. They
broaden every day. In one of its many
forms, our Yellow Slave helps us to
almost every art and walk in life. It
is as necessary as its red fellow servant,
Fire���and a better in one way, since,
unlike fire, it can never become "a bad
master,"' except thru our own fault.
Wear and Tear of Gold
If one could have just the annual
loss by abrasion on the billions of
dollars' worlh of gold now in the world's
hands, there would be no need to envy
Croesus. Every year an impalpable
golden dust, so infinitely fine as to seem
more like vapor than a dust���is worn
from all gold in use, and passes forever
from our wealth and our knowledge
and in our handling, enuf gold lo make
one person incalculably rich disappears
everv vear, lost as absoluieUas if it had
never existed. So even if ihe world's
need of gold were not multiplying very
rapidly, there would be required a large
annual production merely to meet this
shrinkage by wear and tear.
Copper Stain
There's an old saying in the territories of Arizona and New Mexico that
a copper cent will stain an acre. This,
of course, is somewhat allegorical, but
it is a fact that in sandstone and limestones a vein of copper ore only a few
inches in width will frequently stain the
enclosing rock for a distance of many
feet on each side of a vein. These
stains are so dense that in many cases
they present almost exactly the same
appearance as the pure carbonates and
silicates of copper and only an assay
can determine whether the ore is payor not.
Poor Andy
Andy Carnegie was subject to a severe
strain by being on the water six days.
Think of six days with no chance to give
a library to some suffering camp.
Very Likely
A lecturer recently remarked that the
wickedness of the world is due partly
to the papers and the rest to tobacco.
Probably when Cain killed Abel the
murderer had been reading the Christian Guardian and smoking a pipe that
did not draw well.

Important   Changes    That   Should
Noted by Voters
During the lasl silting of the legislature several important changes were
made in the Municipal Clauses and
Municipal Elections Act. As the elections are approaching and as the change
affects the registration of certain quali-
tied voters, a summary of the same is
given below :
Nominations for the offices of mayor
and alderman take place on the second
Monday in January, between the hours
of 1 2 and 2, and polling on the Thursday foi lowing.
A radical departure is more in connection wilh naming the hours in which
polling shall take place. L'nder the
old act, the polling booths were open
from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Under the
amended at t, this has been changed
to i) H.m and 7:30 p.m. The keeping
ol the polls open to the evening hour
named is done wilh the object of making it convenient for workingmen to
Another important new provision is
that all electors must he British sub-
jects. Under the old act all who paid
licenses, foreigners included, could
vote, as could also foreign properly
In respect to properly owners, it is
now provided that they must have $100
worth of property to qualify. Under
tin* old act 10 joint owners could vote.
Again, license holders and householders must make a declaration that
they have been a continuous resident in
tlie municipality for one year, and that
they are British subjects.
The "one man, one vote," principal
is aimed at under the new act. There
will he no more voting by one person
in three wards. Electors must vote in
'lie wards in which Ihey reside. In
llie case where a voter resides outside
tlie city limits he will vote in the ward
in which he has lhe most real estate.

Big Price for Silver
In London recently h silver Elizabethan salt cellar of the date of 1577
and weighing nine ounces was sold at
auction for $15,000. Strange what a
great commercial value the simple date
upon a commodity reaches sometimes,
but perhaps it was the "intrincsic"
value of the contents of the cellar that
was responsible for the immense price
paid. According to latest quotations
salt is about on a par with silver, i.e.,
ten pounds of sail is worth about as
much as that many pounds of silver.
Gold in U. S. Treasury
The hoard of gold in the United
Slates treasury is now greater than
that which any nation ever possessed
before, reaching ahove $600,000,000.
This, says lhe New York World, is
more than three times the combined
coin, bullion and reserves of thc Bank
of England; it is $100,000,000 more
than the gold holdings of the Bank of
France, three limes those of the Imperial Bank of Germany, and 60 per
cent  more  than   Russia's.     It   is   an
astonishing showing.

Silver in Mexico
According to late dispatches the silver
question continues lo begone of the
greatest topics of public discussion in
Mexico. Il is now certain that the
silver miners and farming classes will
make a common cause against the
adoption ol" the gold standard. Meanwhile all prices are being raised and
there is much anxiety among the middle classes, especially wage earners and
salaried men. The cost of living is
considered lo be out of proportion

B Vtappp \ftew Wear.
Another year has rolled around.
The past is dead���the future is all before us. Possibly not as promising as
might be, but when low expect a rise.
The pendulum swings as far one way
as another. The mantle of adversity
cannot forever settle o'er the Slocan.
Hope reaches forward to a betterment.
Don't growl ; leave that to the dogs
and the disconsolate. Kicking only
wearies the anatomy and dulls appreciation of life's brighter phases. Remember that you can't laugh hearty
with the head bowed down. The
happiness of life is less in accomplishment than in pursuit. Keepa'trying ;
the mountain trail rig-zags like the
vagaries of fortune, but it finally
reaches the glorious sunshine on the
summit above the clouds. Don't
waste your time in vain regrets about
what might have been. Where the formation is hard the vein is true. So
hit the kitty and keep on a'dealing.
Meet the New Year with a smile and
enjoy life while you draw this fleeting
breath for you will be a long time
dead and the scene beyond the divide
is ail curtained with mystery.
Wanted^B Ibomestead Zaw
Some coast newspapers and politicians are talking about the chance of
British Columbia getting a share of
the United States immigration which
is now filling up the Northwest.
Under trje present regulations this is
impossible. British Columbia is
handicapped by the fact that there is
no homestead law in this province.
Notwithstanding that seven-eighths
of the country is still unceded crown
land, there is not one acre in the whole
province open to location for agricultural purposes. The prospective
settler must either buy land from some
railway or speculative holder or purchase it under the pre-emption provisions from the government. As
there has never been a comprehensive
survey ot the province the government
or its agents is totally unable to advise
the settler as to where he should go or
what he might expect to find. Moreover, the country has been plastered
indiscriminately by railway and other
land grants and reserves to such an
extent that there is not a government
agent in the province who can tell
what land in his district is open to preemption and what is held against the
settler by corporations. The system
of pre-emption is slow and cumbersome, and it frequently takes six
months to find out thru the lands and
works department whether a preemption will be allowed or not. Considering these circumstances, the intending settler would be a fool to waste
time searching around British Columbia for a farm when he can go over
into the territories and get a Torrens
title to 160 acres of the finest farm land
on earth for nothing. Until British
Columbia has a comprehensive survey
and a homestead law there is no inducement to settlers to come this way.
After that, all that is needed is a little
judicious advertising. British Columbia should have a farming population of at least a million people, but
we will never get them under tlie
present antiquated and unfair laws.
XLhe Jfallacp of protection
The completion of the big irrigation works on the Nile furnishes a very
neat object lesson on the workings of
United States has a tariff arrangement by which she purposes to sell all
she can and buy as little as possible.
The difference is supposed to make
United States rich. One of the largest
items of export is cotton, from tlie
southern states. In order to capture
the world's markets child labor more
heinous than chattel slavery in Georgia
and Alabama is resorted to in cotton
mills. Poor little waifs from six to
twelve years of age are worked to death
tending spindles for a few cents a week.
Production is certainly cheap, disproving the theory that protection
raises wages.
Great Britain can not grow cotton and must buy, but she can sell
nothing in the southern States because
of the McKinley tariff* Therefore, to
play even and furnish herself a market
Great Britain has quietly and unostentatiously set to work to reclaim a
stretch of the Nile Valley capable of
producing an enormous tonnage of
cotton. The land is more fertile than
any of the cotton states of the south
and owing to the fact that it is on
irrigated land the crop is a mechanical
In this country Great Britain can
sell as much as she buys; her ships will
be loaded both ways and both countries will be profited by the trade.
United States stands  to  lose  her
foreign trade, because Egypt and Great
Britain will beat her oui. The inevitable result will be a stagnation in the
south caused by the loss of the British
market. United States will find herself with a cotton surplus on hand and
no place to put it. Then will come
another chapter in the long story of
abandoned farms and profitless production. And while Egypt and Great
Britain flourish with free trade and fair
wages United States will shove the
tariff higher and kill some other
In the Hoskins case, tried in Nelson last week, the jury rendered a verdict for $5000 damages for Mrs.
Hoskins against the Le Roi No. 2.
Hoskins was a miner employed by that
company, who got drowned by raising
into the bottom ot an abandoned shaft.
The jury decided that the company was
responsible and rendered a verdict accordingly. Judge Martin took the
judgment out of the jury's hands and
rendered a decision which cleared the
Le Roi No. 2 company entirely and
assessed Mrs. Hoskins with the costs.
As the jail yawns for he who criticizes
a judge we refrain from expressing our
opinion of Judvje Martin and his judgment. But we can think. And a
whole lot more people are doing a little
thinking on their own account.
If a judge is to exercise the power
of setting aside the findings of the jury
and making himself the sole arbiter,
then there is no safety nor freedom in
the courts and the Magna Charta
must be fought for over again.
Slogan mine owners would like
to know how it happens that the North
Star has been able to ship 500 tons a
month to the Trail smelter. North
Star ore is so much lower grade than
Slocan ore that if the North Star ore
paid the Slocan rate for freight and
treatment the North Star company
would owe the Trail smelter several
hundred dollars on every car. It may
have nothing to do with the case, but
it is noticable that the North Star is
one ofthe principal allies of the Trail
smelter gang in boosting for protection. The North Star belongs to
MacKenzie & Mann.

The socialists of Nanaimo claim a
moral victory. Wandering Willie
Mclnnes will undoubtedly grant them
that so long as he holds the seat. As a
general principal the socialists are all
right theoretically, but when it comes
right down to a case of hard practical
politics they usually fail to deliver
the vote.
As a philanthropist, Pat Burns
comes nearer touching the spot than
Andrew Carnegie. He offered a nice
Christmas turkey to everyone in the
Cootenay who was short of the price.
There is a free-handed, unostentatious
hospitality about Pat's action which is
characteristic of the man.
Jim DriNSMUiR is travelling incog
in California. Californians should be
immadiately notified of the circumstance. Otherwise Jim may have
them taken into camp on a land grant
deal before thev discover who he is.
It will be surprising if the railroad
and smelter companies do not give
better freight and treatment rates after
the new year. The Trail lead stacks
have been working on North Star ore
up to date, but that property is now
dug out, and unless a supply is forthcoming from the Slocan the Trail
stacks will have to be blown out. This
supply cannot be had at the present
rates, and consequently it is up to the
smelter to come down extensively in
rates or shut up their plant.
A St. John, New Brunswick, girl
with a fortune married a title in Ireland
the other day with an 82-year-old man
attached to it. She should have emigrated to the Slocan where every boy
is a prince and her money would not

When lodges, friends and clubs invite.
Thou shalt not smoke indoors or out,
Or chew tobacco round about.
Thou shalt with praise receive thy pies,
No pastry made by me despise.
My mother thou shalt strive to please,
And let her live wilh us at ease,

And try the child to trairquilize.

Tramps vs. Millionaires
The average tramp is a very harmless
person   compared   with    the    average
millionaire.      The   tramp   forces   the
community only   to   support   himself.
He does not ask for extras and a  bank
account.    On the  whole  his  demands
are  simple.    The millionaire, however,
wants   legislation   twisted   to save his
charters; he asks that the representatives
of the people belray the people for his
benefit; that the courts shall be a center
from which technicalities must  radiate
instead    of   a   straight   line   running
directly from injury to justice; that that
which was originally intended for the
protection of the public be used for its
injury. He crosses the boundary of
felony on a trestle work of technicalities.
A tramp will steal a ride on (he
bumpers of a train. A millionaire will
steal the whole road. His ideas are
larger. On the whole the tramp is the
belter citizen.

Colin Campbell, acting for the Slocan
Li^lit and Power company, has applied
for 1000 inches of water, to be taken
from Carpenter creek at Box canyon.
The plant is to be built upon the Apex
claim. The company proposes to light
Now Denver and Silverton and furnish
power to the mines. The companv
proposes to charge 50 cents a month
for lights in residences and $i in stores.
The successful Routing of this enterprise will mean much to New Denver
and vicinity.
Claus was found in the chimney,, unloaded his pack, and gifts were handed
out to all the children, and a great
many to men, especially the Star mine
men. Oranges and candy were given
to all. This entertainment and tree
was as good as thc one held in the
Miners' Union hall.
The concert and Chmtmas  tree in
the Miners's  Union  hall on Tuesday
under the auspices of the   Presbyterian
Saobath  school  was Very   successful.
There was a crowded  house and  the
program \,as the best.    Some delay in
bringing on some of the numbers made
the second half rather long, so lhat  it
was late before Mr. S. Claus put in his
appearance.      The children rendered
their   pieces   remarkably  well,  which
showed    careful   training;    while the
adults recited and sang in  their usual
winning style.    The Christmas tree was
prettily decorated, and  the  number  of
gifts   was   exceptionally large.    S inta
Claus and his assistants were kept very
busy for some time  distributing  these.
Everyone went home well satisfied with
the evening's entertainment.   This concert and tree was as good   as  the  one
held in the Methodist church.
